Gannon Goes Legit
Ben Widdicombe reports today that Jeff Gannon, beloved Washington male escort/journalist, is heading up to New York to chat with the Log Cabin Republicans on Thursday. Widdicombe asks Gannon about his, uh, "biases," and Gannon invokes "the Anderson Cooper rule," which is fantastic on so, so many levels.
Widdicombe fails to ask him how his budding career as a legitimate journo is going, which is a shame, as we hear that Mr. Gannon was the belle of the National Press Club's New Members' Lunch yesterday (he introduced himself as a "former White House correspondent").
Make your own crack about the NPC getting desperate, we'd take Jeff over, say, the entire ABC Political Unit.
